Illustration Friday - strings



cotton fabric, bamboo batting, cotton thread, found object paper, acrylic ink and acrylic paint on 6" x 6" stretched canvas

The starling picked up a bundle of string somewhere on his travels. Perhaps he was hanging around my studio?

Great collage and idea. Love your colours too, very effective. Isn't it wonderful when you find a bird's nest and it's full of all sorts of materials both natural and man made.

what an amazing piece - it is a quilt block? - what patience this must take!

What a great bird! I love the stamp used in the corner, too... and the pop of color it adds.

Nice patterns. And I always like stuff with postage stamps. IDK why.

Wow - the simplicity and beauty of this piece is great. I collect stamps off mail and have been pondering ways to use them. I like this.
